Hammack Law Firm Wins $1.3 Million Settlement for Injured Client

GREENVILLE, South Carolina—Personal injury attorneys Paul Hammack and Jamie Ackermann of Hammack Law Firm are pleased to announce a $1.3 million settlement for a client who was severely injured in a South Carolina car accident.

On October 31, 2023, the at-fault driver turned left directly into the path of the client, causing their vehicle to violently flip multiple times and come to rest against a house. Although the at-fault driver claimed that their vehicle had stalled in the roadway, they had the vehicle crushed before it could be inspected. Clearly the reckless driver was hiding something he did not want the Hammack attorneys to find out.

The client suffered serious injuries, including a three-column T-12 compression fracture requiring spinal instrumentation with rods and screws. The hardware will need to be removed in the future, and there is potential for additional medical procedures. Regardless, the client faces a long and difficult journey to recovery.

While the primary insurer initially attempted to limit their liability with a policy step-down provision, Hammack Law Firm’s legal team successfully argued that full policy limits should be paid. This seven-figure settlement will help cover the client’s ongoing medical expenses and lifestyle adjustment.

“We are pleased to obtain this result for our client, who suffered traumatic injuries through no fault of their own,” said Paul Hammack. “This settlement will provide needed compensation and care as they work to recover from the devastating effects of this accident.”

Hammack Law Firm remains dedicated to aggressively representing individuals severely injured due to another’s negligence.
